This midcentury modern place was designed by the noted architect (look him up) back in the 1960s and still looks a distinctive build today. It’s also said to be in a good location too, only 7 or 8 minutes from the city centre. You can also see Table Mountain and Lions Head from the back garden, which is some view, I’m sure you’ll agree.

In terms of features, those views apart, the house is situated on a large plot, not far from a golf course and with high ceilings, ‘exotic’ wood flooring and bedrooms that all lead out into the garden. There’s also a central courtyard and an outside swimming pool.
